Morley, manufacturers of world famous Wah, Volume and Switching devices announced the release of its newest product – the Buffer Boost. The Buffer Boost is a combination buffer circuit and clean boost pedal. The buffer circuit maintains guitar tone and overall signal strength even when using it with effects that typically load down your signal. It is the culmination of years of buffer circuit designs used in Morley pedals like the Steve Vai Bad Horsie Wah, the Mark Tremonti Wah and the George Lynch Dragon 2 Wah.
The Buffer Boost is also a handy clean boost pedal. A foot switch allows you to turn on/off the boost as needed and a level knob offers up to 20dB of boost. Dual LEDs show that the pedal power is on and when the boost is engaged.
Director of Engineering Scott Flesher states, “We have continued to tweek the design of our TrueTone buffer circuit over the last 15 years. The result is a buffer circuit that maintains guitar tone and signal but doesn’t alter the overall personality of the guitar. Plus, the boost is essential for being heard during a solo or anytime you just need to be louder.” Scott continues, “We understand that tone is everything to guitarists so we know the buffer boost is a pedal that every guitar player can benefit from.”
The Buffer Boost is housed in a cold rolled steel housing and can be powered from one 9V battery or optional Morley 9V adapter. Although the Buffer Boost was designed with guitarists in mind, it can be used anywhere where tone and level are important.
